ENGINE ROOM SIGNS PETER WARE AS BUSINESS CONSULTANT
Hollywood, CA - (October 6, 2009) -- Visual effects and design company Engine Room has tapped consultant Peter Ware of Warecrest Entertainment to offer strategic guidance and boost brand awareness for the boutique company. Ware brings extensive experience as a visual effects producer and former president of Stargate Digital to his role at Engine Room. His latest credit was that of Visual Effects Producer/Supervisor on Warner Premier's "Scooby Doo: The Mystery Begins."
"Engine Room is Hollywood's best kept secret and I intend to change all of that," says Ware. "They have amazing talent and provide exceptional service to clients, not to mention beautifully executed effects and design for features, television and commercials."
Peter Ware and Engine Room founder/cinematographer Dan Schmit first met in 1997 during the production of "Asteroid." The two have kept in touch over the years, with an eye to future collaboration. Ware launched his consulting agency, Warecrest, in 2006 as Engine Room was expanding its reach further into television episodic and promotion, offering a timely opportunity to reunite.
"Few people understand the changing television visual effects business better than Peter Ware; he's a veteran general in exactly our field. This means that the wealth of experience he shares is perfectly in line with what we as a company need right now," says Schmit, who is a believer in surrounding the company with the right advisors. "Peter has already been invaluable in keeping us focused in these tricky times. I am looking forward to continuing our relationship with him for many years to come."
Cinematographer/VFX Supervisor Dan Schmit and Executive Producer Michael Caplan and their talented team of Artists combined in 2001 to form the next paradigm for visual effects in the entertainment industry. Epitomizing the phrase "Good things come in small packages" Engine Room is a focused, creative boutique that combines a highly creative process for the filmmakers while satisfying the studios' need for fiscal responsibility and efficiency. Engine Room's clients include HBO, Disney Channel, Lifetime, CBS and Discovery.
